I haven’t posted anything relatively hardcore in a while, so it was about time I found some good stuff. Former Thieves, out of the Iowa hardcore scene, play ruthlessly hard and loud punk. These guys have played past shows with bands Native, La Dispute, Xerxes, and Touché Amoré, so I just assumed they are good. The Great and the Alleged Great may be only 5 songs totally up to 15 minutes, but they don’t hesitate at all to let loose. While still a raw punk album, the music is surprising intricate and polished, which takes a few listens to notice those small things. Former Thieves are signed onto Mansfield, OH hardcore-label Mayfly Records. They got this release printed on sweet orange/yellow swirl vinyl from Gotta Groove Records! You can pick this release on vinyl from Mayfly’s Big Cartel or pay a dollar for it on their BandCamp.
